Mick understands fans' frustrations as Town go down to Championship leaders

Mick McCarthy says he understands the fans’ frustrations after Town failed to score for the fourth successive game in going down to Championship leaders Huddersfield. 

Chris Schindler got the only goal of the game with a header from a corner to give the Terriers the points, with the Town boss conceding this is the hardest time he’s had in charge at Portman Road. 

“There was nothing in the game until we switched off at a corner,” Mick told Ipswich Player HD. 

“We are red hot at marking from corners and free-kicks so it’s obviously very disappointing to concede a goal like that.

“That allowed them to sit in but we weren’t good enough on the ball and we didn’t create enough chances again.

“I’m not going to stand here and try and justify our performances. We have not created enough chances and we are struggling to score goals. 

“It’s my hardest time as a manager here at the moment, without a doubt. I’m not deaf, I can hear the mumblings of discontent with what is going on, the frustrations of the supporters. I understand that.

“We’re all frustrated at the moment that we’re not entertaining the crowd and getting results. We’ve just got to keep working at it because it's only us that can turn it around.”
